Muslim US Congresswoman slams Republicans for linking her to 9/11

Recently, a poster linking the Muslim lawmaker from Minnesota to the 9/11 attack was reportedly hung in the West Virginia statehouse by Republicans for a “Republicans Take the Rotunda” event.   The poster showed a photograph of the Twin Towers in flames with the words, "Never forget - you said...." followed by, "I am the proof you have forgotten," alongside a photo of Omar. "No wonder why I am on the 'Hitlist' of a domestic terrorist and 'Assassinate Ilhan Omar' is written on my local gas stations. Look no further, the GOP's anti-Muslim display likening me to a terrorist rocks in state capitols and no one is condemning them!" the Democratic representative wrote on Twitter. The September, 11, 2001 attacks, also known as the 9/11 attacks, were a series of strikes in the US which killed nearly 3,000 people and caused about $10 billion worth of property and infrastructure damage. US officials assert that the attacks were carried out by 19 al-Qaeda terrorists but many experts have raised questions about the official account. They believe that rogue elements within the US government, such as former Vice President Dick Cheney, orchestrated or at least encouraged the 9/11 attacks in order to accelerate the US war machine and advance the Zionist agenda. Some pro-Israel US politicians have accused Omar of anti-Semitic comments because she has been a staunch critic of Israel and its anti-Muslim policies in the Middle East. She has also repeatedly slammed the main Israeli lobby in the US, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Speaking on Wednesday night at an event in Washington, DC with fellow Representative Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Omar dismissed anti-Semitic charges against her, saying everything they say about Israel is interpreted as anti-Semitic because they are Muslim. She added that anti-Semitic accusations are brought up to prevent a “broader debate” about Israel’s brutal treatment of Palestinians. Omar and Tlaib became the first Muslim women elected to the US Congress after winning their seats in November last year.
